Froome back in very good nick

- Rome

– Four-time Tour de France champion Chris Froome is confident he has “several years of cycling” ahead of him after his recovery from last year’s career-threatenin­g Criterium du Dauphine accident.

Froome, 35, will leave Ineos at the end of the year to join Israel Start-Up Nation.

“If I didn’t think I’d be able to return at 100% after the injury in 2019 I would never have committed to a long-term project,” Froome told the Italian sports daily Gazzetta dello Sport.

Froome was left out of Ineos’ Tour de France team but is in Italy to compete in the Tirreno-Adriatico, an eight-stage warm-up for the Vuelta a Espana. – AFP
